Not sounding good for Prior if the decision is down to the doctors. I guess if he doesn't make it Bairstow will keep wicket, is he up to it?

Yes

We'll miss prior's personality and presence, but Bairstow will do fine with glove and bat.

You've changed your tune a bit on Bairstow

I agree with you though, he'll be okay I think. Prior still a big miss though.

I've bought loads of cans of coke in, along with Doritos and spicy salsa

Only planning to do til lunch (2am) tonight, get up, avoid the score, school run, then sit down to watch the highlights show which I believe is on at 10am. Also the Ashes Breakfast is on 9-10, so I'll record that and watch it after the highlights. That'll be my daily routine

Yes and no. I don't think Bairstow is good enough to bat 6, but I think he's able number 7.

Well there's obviously not a great deal of difference but I know what you mean. I don't think he's in Prior's class with the bat though (Prior's poor form post NZ notwithstanding).

I see Sky have left Nick Knight at home

They've taken Ian Ward out there. Holding never travels so there was a gap. Strauss involved again.

I don't follow cricket but wasn't the Ashes held earlier this year in July? Why another one during the same year?

The series down under would normally have been this time next year but Australia is holding the World Cup at about the same time so they've brought this one forward.

Fucking LOL one of the Aussie front pages this morning labels Broad a "smug Pommy cheat"

I love it when the Aussies are like this on the back foot and feel like they have to go on the attack!

I'd love it if we manage another series win without a test defeat against them

Possibly the greatest insult in the Courier Mail's front page "smug pommy cheat" story is describing Broad as a medium pacer

Didn't Cook score some big big hundreds last time... And Trott and KP scored a double too? I don't see where this Aussie bravado is coming from (other than in being Aussie), they have no form whatsoever right now. All I see this doing is motivating England who are on their day a far superior team.

First test will be interesting. Dunno what the wicket is but you'd be tempted to stick the Aussies in and rattle them with some early wickets.

Sounds like it's a batter's paradise but it should do a bit early on. Hope we bat.

Good toss to lose. Tough first morning with the bat and wickets could easily tumble.

As they don't have their own head of state can we just have one anthem and get on with the cricket?

Our quicks are very one paced. We've got no one, bar Broad very rarely, who can bowl at 90mph and when it's not swinging we might be pretty toothless. Everything is 83mph and Tremlett very tame so far.
